OK, it’s no longer called an S Pen, but the Samsung Chromebook Pro has a PEN. All all caps pen, so you know it’s a big deal, even if it does look exactly like an S Pen pulled from the cold dead fingers of the Galaxy Note 7 (too soon?). All jokes aside, this new Chromebook from Samsung actually looks really nice, and it can be picked up right now on Samsung Korea’s website.
The Samsung Chromebook Pro is a $499, 12.3-inch transformer laptop with a touchscreen, stylus and Chrome OS, meaning it has access to all your favorite Android apps as well. Its 3:2 aspect ratio, 2,400 x 1,600 pixel screen is of the 360-degree rotating variety, meaning it can be used like a laptop or folded all the way back to make a tablet.
The Chromebook Pro features a hexa-core chipset with two Cortex A72 cores and four Cortex A53 cores, along with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Besides looking fantastic, the metallic laptop weighs just 1 kilogram and has two USB Type-C ports and an SD card slot. You can pre-order the laptop now on Adorama and an official Samsung announcement should be coming shortly.
